Taking Photos and Videos Onboard

Guests are permitted to take photos and videos onboard the cruise and during performances with small, non-professional digital cameras and cell phones, at times, dependent upon the artist. Professional quality cameras with detachable lenses and video specific cameras are strictly prohibited in performance venues. Out of respect for our performers and your fellow guests, we ask that you please NOT use a flash during shows.

Also, please be respectful of the artists when they are out and about on board the ship between performances. This is a working vacation for them and if they are constantly mobbed, they may run away and hide in their cabins … and nobody wants that!

This policy is actually no different than it has ever been, we have just restructured how we are communicating information because there have been some problems. This is a multi-tiered issue.

First of all, while there are several bands that don’t have any problem with fans using any camera of their choice, many of the larger, more well-known bands have strict policies regarding photography at their shows.

Second, Royal Caribbean has policies about photographing their logo, their staff, etc.

Therefore, only Royal Caribbean photographers will be allowed to use professional level photography equipment on board. RCI’s photographers will be working with NAHA to provide band and crowd shots as well as their standard cruise photography.

You are certainly welcome to bring a camera, you just cannot use a professional-style camera during the shows.  If you have a professional-style camera that you would like to bring on board for scenery shots (such as while in port), etc., please feel free to do so, but be VERY CAREFUL about where and how you take pictures on board the ship.  If you are found using a professional camera somewhere where you should not be, you will be asked to leave that area immediately – even if it is a show venue.

You’re not here to work – you’re here to ENJOY!  So your best bet is to bring a small non-professional digital to snap whatever memories you wish, but leave the professional cameras at home.

What Passengers Think

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.

My husband and I took a chance and booked our first ever cruise in December 2011 after listening to a radio commercial about a cruise with ZZ Top, George Thorogood and John Kay playing and cruising with us (among many other great bands!). This was “Woodstock on Water”! We have been on every one since and have made many new friends who we correspond with throughout the year and look forward to seeing every year. There should be a different word than “Cruise” to describe this because it does not compare to a standard cruise by any means. Seeing- greeting-hugging-taking pictures with so many of our idols – PRICELESS!! Pam and the NAHA staff do an outstanding job and we always book as soon as each cruise booking opens – no need to wait to see who will be rockin’ us! If you like classic and southern rock and have not booked this cruise, do not wait or you’ll miss out. It sells out earlier every year. (Love to all the Dfers and FB Rock Legends Cruise Fans and FB Rock Legends Cruise Party’ers!)
